A capacity crowd of over 160 thought leaders and innovators gathered on June 10, 2013 to participate in the first-ever Northwest Biocarbon Summit, held at the Center for Urban Horticulture in Seattle. The Summit provided a unique opportunity for people engaged in biocarbon solutions—soil-building agriculture, conservation forestry, composting, biochar, natural infrastructure, and restoration of watersheds and coastal wetlands—to connect, collaborate, learn from each other, and hatch plans. The energy in the room was collaborative and electric, the presentations sharp and compelling, and the conversations action-oriented and creative.
